    Kinda surprised I haven't been able to find a topic on this yet.

    Anyone have any good ideas for cases/sleeves for the SP3?

    I really just want a sleeve that doesn't have trouble with pulling the SP3 in and out of the sleeve whenever it has the keyboard attached. I had issues with other sleeves with SP2 when the keyboard was on it.

    When I pre-ordered my SP3, it gave me the option to buy a sleeve for it. I bought it, and it turned out to be a generic Incipio sleeve that "fits most 13 inch laptops and ultrabooks." It looks like it's much bigger than it needs to be. I don't need a suitcase for my SP3; I want a sleeve that's made for it. I'll be returning the Incipio sleeve and waiting for something tailored to the SP3.

    There's not a topic on this yet because there aren't any cases/sleeves available yet.

    They'll probably start popping up a week or two before release date.

    I found some artsy ones on etsy that aren't cheap. I don't have a link but I think they were called surface sleeves. I know, generic. Just Bing it.

    Yeah, I'm using an etsy sleeve made out of cork. The etsy seller's name is corkor. It's awesome. I'm still waiting to get my Freedom Case from kickstarter... I'm sure I'm gonna have the Surface Pro 3 before I receive my Freedom Case.... I wonder if they'll make one for the SP3.

    I use this Asus Lamborghini bag for my Helix. Based on the measurements of the SP3, it should also fit nicely in this bag. The bag is amazingly well built and has a very premium feel to it.

    Hi gang,
    I'm looking for more of a portfolio for the Pro 3. You know, like the kind that you put a legal sized tablet of paper in, it may have a calculator on the left side, room for business cards, a pen holder in the middle. That kind of thing, but instead of the pad of paper, I'd put the Pro 3, carry it to meetings, take notes on it like normal, and use it to do all sorts of things in a pinch. Please let me know if anyone spots something like this, and thanks in advance!

    I saw the cases from Corkor, seems pretty cool.

    How is the case in terms of padding/protection for SPx?

    Any idea if those can accommodate the SP3 when the Type Cover is attached? Those look really nice, might have to snatch one.

    No idea. They only have one picture. I'm looking for a sleeve myself. I don't like the 'always on' added weight of a case.

    For now I'll probably stick with the case I'm using for my SP2 - it's a Case Logic case for 12" laptops/netbooks, so it should fit. But I'd like a folio something like the Freedom Case for the SP3, though the kickstand on the 3 does kind of obsolete the rest of the Freedom Case's design.

    I honestly hate the idea of cases on the Surface units. None of the cases are able to take advantage of the built in kickstand. I doubt any of the newer cases will either. Because of that, I don't even bother with a case anymore.

    That's where the upcoming Freedom Case has the advantage over other cases. I like my SP2 naked, but I want something to protect it, so for now I carry it in a Case Logic case. When I get my SP3, it would be nice to have something like the Freedom Case, but until that happens, I'll carry it in the same case I'm using now - kind of a very mini soft-sided briefcase.

    Wouldn't getting a normal case cause the device to overheat? Seems like it would block the vents the way the sp3 is designed.

    If you're talking to me about the case I use now, I'm talking about a case that I stick the PC in to carry it. Not for use while using the SP2. If you're asking about the Freedom Case, it is specifically designed not to block the ventilation ports (so they say). If you're not asking about what I'm using, but other cases, I don't know them, as I've not used any.

    Even though I like what the freedom case does I still think it's not going to take advantage of the built in kickstand. Especially on the surface pro 3 where you can set the stand in any way you'd like. The cases that we need are actual covers or cases like a cell phone would have. Not a case that hinders the design of the device.

    I definitely agree that with the SP3 a case like the Freedom Case is less of a need, but I still like the wrap-around folio-type cover that it is, even if it didn't have the different angles of support. I'm imagining something that attaches at the stand, like the current Freedom Case, wraps around the top from back to front when the PC is not being used, and secures at the bottom, with a magnet securing it in place - perhaps a magnet that interacts with both the place where the new keyboard magnets work, and the keyboard magnets themselves, so that the case works with or without the keyboard. When in use, it flips back, hinging at the top of the PC, leaving the vent holes uncovered. Maybe there's a place where magnets can attach to the PC at the top, so that they hold the case in place, no need for any other attachments. The loose flap then has a hinge in the middle, where the PC's hinge is, so that you can adjust the PC's hinge at any angle, just like without the case.

    I hereby claim patent on this idea. (wouldn't it be great if it were that easy?)

    I found this article to be very useful:
    Buying the Surface Pro 3? Here are the apps, games, programs and accessories you need

    In it, the author links to a sleeve on Amazon (for the 11.6" Asus Chromebook) and says it's the perfect size for the SP3. Here's the Amazon link:
    Amazon.com: rooCASE Super Bubble Neoprene Sleeve Case for Acer AC700 Chromebook 11.6-Inch Laptop (Black / Neon Green): Computers & Accessories

    And here's an ebay link where you can find it from the same store, but at a cheaper price and with free shipping!:
    rooCASE Bubble Sleeve Case Cover for Apple MacBook Air 11 6 Chromebook 11 6 | eBay

    The suggestions and links in th rest of the article are pretty good too, especially if this will be your first Windows 8.1 pc.

    This is a bare bones soft case (sleeve) that holds the Surface Pro 3 with the keyboard very nicely. It has an external zippered pocked that I use for the pen but can be used for much more. It is just the right size, not like some others advertised for the Surface Pro 3 that are 3 inches to wide.
